WATCH: ‘Daily Show’ Gives Trump A ‘Presidential Twitter Library’ For His Birthday

U.S. President Donald Trump received a special library to celebrate his birthday, which slipped by quietly on June 14.

To help the president celebrate, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” prepared a gallery of the president’s tweets in New York City.

While a Presidential library is traditionally a way for former American presidents to celebrate their tenure, this library is a brief tongue-in-cheek initiative to pay homage to Trump’s now-iconic Twitter presence.

The Trump Presidential Twitter Library opened its doors for business in New York City on Friday, and will be available for public viewing this weekend only with no admission charges. The display is located just a few blocks from his  Trump Tower residence.

The library is an attempt at a birthday gift for the president – who Daily Show host Trevor Noah  said during a recent episode received a lawsuit on his birthday. The gallery displays some of Trump’s best-known tweets on the social media platform.

The Republican president is a prolific Twitter user and uses social media to communicate in a way no president has done before. Trump tweets about a range of political and other issues while also using the platform to attack his political and celebrity opponents.

Noah said the library is aimed at assembling in one place “some of the greatest ideas that have ever been shared in 140 characters or less.”

“What we’ve done here today is really put together the finest tweets, the best of the best, the moments that encapsulate what the president means on this beautiful platform,” said Noah, who like other late night television hosts has roundly mocked Trump throughout his five months in office.

Trump’s tweets are sorted into several categories including “Constructive Criticism,” “Deleted but not Forgotten” and “Always the Best.”

Noah said the show is in talks to take the Twitter Library to other cities after its weekend debut in New York, but no firm plans have been made.

Despite the satirical intent of this event, there are 14 real presidential libraries scattered around the U.S.. Their intent is to preserve a historical record of former presidents and are run by the Office of Presidential Libraries.
